Hosea 1 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

The word of the Lord that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.

The beginning of the word of the Lord by Hosea. And the Lord said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the Lord.

So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.

And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.

And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel, in the valley of Jezreel.

And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.

today's verse

Hos.1 (Old Testament)

But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.

Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.

Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.

10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

prophetic word for today

Hosea 1: Being God’s people.

Memory verse: Hosea 1:9 Then God said: “Call his name Lo-Ammi, For you are not My people, And I will not be your God.

The inception of the book of Hosea started with how God instructed prophet Hosea to marry a woman named Gomar, who was a harlot. This woman was unfaithful to her husband. However, God was using the relationship of the prophet Hosea with Gomar as a metaphor for His relationship with His people, Israel.

God’s people – the Israelites – have drifted away from God by being unfaithful to Him and indulging in spiritual adultery by worshiping other gods, and God had already made it clear to them after the crossing of the red sea that their going after other gods will be to their detriment because He is a jealous God [ Deut. 6:15 ]. For God to be our God, we also must be willing to be His people.

God detests what the Israelites were doing, and this act of defiance to obey God’s precepts caused God to utter these words in Hosea 1:9 "… For you are not My people, And I will not be your God” which depicts that, for we to be God’s people, it is expected of us to do His will and live holy for Him – not like Israelites who chase after other gods. God is holy and He would never bend His standard of holiness for any reason – He didn't even bend it to His so-called favorites.
